A lot of times I’m in the predicament of having a handful of bananas that I haven’t eaten quickly enough before they get overripe. 🙁 And I hate wasting food…so the perfect solution is a yummy banana bread that isn’t overly sweet and a recipe that Mabel really enjoys. Oh and it’s super easy to make!
Brown Sugar Banana Bread
- 3-4 overripe bananas
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 eggs
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 9x5 bread loaf pan and then set it aside.
Mix flour, salt and baking soda in a large bowl, set aside.
In another bowl, cream butter and brown sugar together, then add beaten eggs and mashed bananas...you can easily mash the bananas with a fork, nothing fancy needed 🙂
Now combine both mixtures and stir until everything is blended.
Pour batter into greased bread loaf pan.
Bake for 60-65 minute and check by sticking a toothpick (or knife) into the center of the loaf and make sure it comes out clean.
Let it cool for 10 minutes and then carefully take the loaf out of the pan to cool the rest of the way on a wire rack.
I really like this bread because it doesn’t have as much sugar as other recipes…and I’m also partial to it since Mabel loves it! I hope you enjoy it too!
